  1. DC Rainmaker confirms the poor performance of the Fenix for OW swimming. A pity as the 5x plus is on special at JB Hifi!
  2. DNM seems to get very good reviews - a common comment is that you need to put a spring at the end of the cable and that mounting the release lever can be tricky if you are not running 1x. I'm thinking about putting one on my Anthem. https://www.cyclingdeal.com.au/buy/dnm-mountain-bike-dropper-seatpost-remote-lockout/HQS-R

    Washing bike shoes

    Bottom rack of the dishwasher- make sure you turn off the drying cycle.
  4. Looks like Xterra could be back again, https://www.dirttri.com/news/xterra-returns-to-australia/
  5. Cross tri QLD http://trextriathlon.com.au/events/2017-qld-championships-multisport-festival/, Xterra TBA
  6. Looks like a fair bit of climbing so a 27.5 hard tail is probably the go unles your dually is super light.
  7. Some type of pvr is probably the best option, go for one that has all the Netcast apps - iview, stan, Netflix etc. if you have got a good internet plan then Apple TV or Chromecast, don't bother recording if you can watch it on the net.
  8. Early entries for the Nosh close tonight. 14ish km from East Linfield to Seaforth. http://www.bennelongnorthside.com.au/?q=nosh2016
  9. Try the dirt crit track at the SSCC bike track at Sutherland. Party's suggestion for Bottle Forest is good, a couple of fire trails and an open dirt area with a good variety of little drops & fool downs. Dropped pin near Royal National Park NSW 2232 https://goo.gl/maps/JiZCQYfXjGp
  10. Roxii, what width are your handlebars? The current fashion is for wider bars. One of the first things I did when I bought my Giant Anthem was to put narrower bars on - I wouldn't like to do Kentlyn or parts of Loftus/Heathcote with the stock bars.
  11. Kentlyn is well worth the trip, much better than Mt Annan and only a few minutes further, plenty of variety but apart from the Rocky Trail it's not well marked. I usually start in Sirius St. Probably best to do it with someone who knows their way around or check out Strava. Appin is also pretty good & I hear that there is some new stuff there. Menai is getting better as more work gets done and there is also the stuff between the Ansto car park and the baseball field at Barden Ridge.
  12. Have a look at the Polygon Collosus as well. https://www.bicyclesonline.com.au/polygon-collosus-n6-enduro-mountain-bike
  13. Giant Trance, although there may not be many of this years model left.
